This arrangement by Ruben Schmidt is the exciting polonaise finale from the last movement of Tchaikovsky’s thrilling Suite No.3 in G Major for Orchestra. This was first performed in Saint Petersburg on January 12th, 1885, at the fifth symphony concert of the Russian Musical Society, conducted by Hans von Bülow. The suite also was Tchaikovsky’s first American success when it was performed by the New York Symphony Society at Carnegie Hall on May 7,1891. 


First intended as its own symphony, it became the most played and most successful of Tchaikovsky’s four suites. The finale of the last movement is an invigorating polonaise dance to finish the suite. Tchaikovsky often enjoyed conducting this final movement as an independent work himself.
